. jonathan, i have a list, a horrible list, of the deadliest u.s. school shootings. columbine, of course, killed 12 students before the two shooters took their own lives. we're hearing reports now that up to 20 children may have been shot. it is hopefully -- we say this every single time we cover one of these things, a line in the sand. there has got to be a measurable xhank, some kind of reaction. one would hope that there will be some political capital to report in the way we handle gun and gun violence in this country. >> what's so traumatizing, beyond the trauma that we're already experiencing is the fact that we're talking about the possibility of multiple children dead. not high school students. want college students. not pedestrians on the street. grown adults. we're talking about children who went to school today, you know, starry-eyed, going to school with all the hope and joy that comes with that. especially in this holiday season and to now learn that a gunman went into that school. someone from the outside. i mean, just we don't know who this gunman is. we don't know if this

taste this soup. >> it is with great pleasure that i am announcing that i am appointing our next u.s. senator to be congressman tim scott. >> that was south carolina governor nikk haley moments ago announcing her pick to replace senator jim demint. according to state law, tim scott will hold that seat until 2014 when voters choose who serves out the remainder of the term. two weeks ago senator demint announced he was resigning in order to take a position at the heritage foundation. in a statement demint called tim scott a "principled leader and an important voice for conservatives across the nation." coming up, as america mourns the victims of the sandy hook shooting, the story that had most of the -- the story that most of the country had been focused on has rightly remained on the sidelines. will washington put aside the squabbling and reach a deal on the fiscal cliff? we will ask luke russert just ahead. oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy.
